Anti-Bullying week

This week has been Anti-Bullying week and the theme this year is ‘All Different, All Equal’. Mr Sharp led a whole school assembly on Monday, and over the week year groups have undertaken a range of activities.

Book Week

This week has been Children’s Book week organised by the Book Trust. Its aim is to celebrate books and inspire children everywhere to love reading for fun and pleasure. Y1 and Y2 visited the local library on Wednesday and we have held reading clubs for KS2 children at lunch times.

To view the Great Books Guide 2017, which contains the Trust’s favourite children’s books from the past year, from 0 all the way up to 11 years, please see the website below.



Road Safety week 20-27th November 2017

Along with thousands of schools, colleges and community groups, we are taking part in the UK’s biggest road safety event next week. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Speed Down Save Lives’.

In the UK speeding is still a major problem. It causes needless crashes, untold suffering and stops people living safe and healthy lives.

This year’s campaign will focus on:

  • speed causes deaths and serious injuries on our roads
  • rural roads are not race tracks
  • 20mph is the only safe speed in heavily built-up areas used by pedestrians and cyclists
  • going slow = stopping in time
  • speed is scary and noisy. It stops communities being enjoyable places for children and families to walk, talk and play
  • speed cameras work. They save lives.
  • Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) is an important development that is likely to be fitted to all vehicles in the future

We will have a whole school assembly and classes will run a range of activities to raise awareness of road safety.

Christmas service

This year we will be holding a whole school service at the Holy Trinity church in Idle, on Thursday 7th December at 10 am. Parents are invited to attend.

We had hoped that this would take place during the last week of term but there were no available dates. This service will replace the carol concert which takes place on the last day of term in school. Next year we hope to arrange a date nearer to the end of term.

We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas in church all together and hope that you can join us.



Y5  won the attendance for last week. Well done!

The whole school attendance was 97.2%



This week’s winners of our behaviour award are Y6.  Well Done!
